Introducing RoboMate

In addition to the Custom Designed Platforms that Vetex is known for, we are now offering mobility platforms in Standard configurations.  While primarily intended for use by Robotic System Integrators, there are many other applications, including materials handling, where these standard platforms will be able to provide Omni-Directional Mobility at a lower cost than a Custom Designed solution. In their basic form these platforms are prepared for CAN bus control by some higher level system, but they can easily be utilized by manual control with any of our available plug-in operator interface options.

Commercial Tiller Head
Walk Behind Tiller Control

We offer two walk behind tiller options. The Commercial option is a lower cost version suitable for use in normal indoor commercial applications such as laboratories and warehouses. It has an available BDI/SSI option. The Industrial version is more suited to heavy duty indoor/outdoor applications like factories, airports, and aboard ships. It is typically used on swingarm mounted applications where large loads require maximum visibility for tight quarter manuvering. It has a redundant deadman operation sometimes required in special applications, and is available with IP65 sealing. Its BDI/SSI is upgradeable to full drive system diagnostics with error logging capabilities and adjustable system performance settings.

Industrial Tiller Head
Other Options

In addition to providing your RoboMate Platform with our Standard mark resistant Polyurethane rollers, we can offer it equipped with special non-marking gray rollers for use in laboratories, clean rooms, on carpet, tile, or any surface that is very sensitive to being marked by rolling tires.
